an open letter to physics

Wednesday. 12. 2. 2009.

Dear Physics,

How I love yet hate thee.

Don’t get me wrong, I will get through you. But I want you to know that it has been a while since I last had something make me react in such a way. I am fascinated by you but at the same time there are moments when I dread having to pick up that book and punch in those numbers in my calculator.

If only you were not a pre requisit for dental school. But then I would not have this love-hate relationship with you. Then where would my sanity be? There would be less moments of “Aha!” along with lesser moments of “What the hell did I do wrong?!”

I am not saying that you are all bad. In many ways, I enjoy your presence. It makes me feel good to be able to explain why certain things happen. For example, I can explain the old table cloth trick. I also now understand what 1 atmosphere means rather than just think of it as a diving term that only people with diving licenses understand.

I am not entirely sure if I will need you when I am a dentist but I just wanted to let you know that it’s not too often that something can have me going through such highs and such lows.

Love and always,

–Wendy
